Knee Pain in Golfers- Why?
Knee pain caused by the golf swing is because of tight hips or ankles, but it could also be lack of stability around the knee. If the muscles that supposed to be stabilizing aren’t then we’re going to experience pain at some point.
If you’re really trying to get some torque or rotation in the hips or even upper body and your knee joint isn’t stabilized by the thigh muscle or your hamstrings are too tight, that’s when we see the most pain in the knee.
By doing some simple stabilizing, like in this video, you can drastically lower the risk of pain in the knee. But, like any other type of exercise or muscle prep, you have to be consistent.
